Section of Park Street still closed during repair work

A section of Park Street, between E. Sixth and Seventh streets, was closed beginning Monday, April 15 so city crews can repair a broken water main under the street.
 The target completion date is Friday, April 26.
 The water main was shut down last winter after a leak was discovered. The city transferred water flow to another main to keep users in service.
 “It has been down quite some time, but it doesn’t really affect anybody,” said City of Weiser Public Works Supervisor Mike Campbell. “There are actually two mains there, so we transferred the service … so we could keep everyone going. But it needs to be back up and fixed because water usage goes up in the summer and it will make a difference. It’s not too big of an issue; it’s just going to be a heck of a project to get done.”
 The closure does not affect school bus routes, according to Weiser School District Transportation Secretary May West.
